We are seeking to develop and provide a Post Graduate Diploma for our students to enable them to work as Mental Health Counsellors. The recently released He Ara Oranga inquiry into mental health and addiction has recognised that services are missing for people with less severe mental health and addiction needs. Furthermore, the report highlighted the need for more early intervention and prevention initiatives.

Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi will be looking to upskill students to gain employment in counselling professions to meet the clear need for more counselling services.

This RFP relates to the conducting of a Needs Analysis, Programme and Resource Development.

We are seeking to provide a quality post-graduate programme that is underpinned by Āhuatanga Māori which will give students a strong sense of cultural identity, self-worth, and/or employment.

We are seeking suppliers that can:

• Meet the requirements of Programme Resource to meet Education standards, NZQA approval and TWWoA branding and quality standards
• Write programmes against Te Hono o Te Kahurangi and Iwi Wānanga framework
• Have robust internal process management and quality control procedures; Procurement processes adhere to Procurement Policy and Governance for sourcing
• Have a degree of innovation or pro-activeness; Readiness to have documents available and continuous communication, clarity of requirements expressed to TWWoA
